The galaxy may be vast, but you only need to travel to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for a grand adventure. Whether you are a Sith lord or Jedi master, Batuu is a great place for young adults to explore together. Here are seven experiences for young adults to experience while visiting Black Spire Outpost:
1. Hand craft a customized lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers
After finding this hidden workshop, Guests can build their own personal lightsabers together as a group of helpers called the “Gatherers” guide them. You can pick out which color kyber crystal you want to accompany your hilt and soon enough, you’ll look just like a member of the Rebellion or First Order.
2. Gather for a memorable meal at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Foodies will rejoice over the unique food created by Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs. For breakfast, the Mustafarian Laval Roll is a sweet way to start the day. For lunch and dinner, Guests can take a bite out of the Fried Endorian Tip-yip featuring crispy chicken, roasted vegetable potato mash and herb gravy. The Batuu-bon chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse and coffee custard will add flavor to any social media feed!
3. Say “cheers” to the beats inside Oga’s Cantina
Oga Garra may be a Blutopian crime boss, but she knows how to run a popular cantina. Enjoy out-of-this-world beverages, including the Fuzzy Tauntaun, Bespin Fizz and Jedi Mind Trick. For non-alcoholic options, toast over the Carbon Freeze, Jabba Juice or the Blue Bantha. TIP: Oga’s Cantina now accepts reservations up to 60 days in advance.
4. Uncover amazing galactic treasure at Dok Ondar’s Den of Antiquities
You can be one with the Force by collecting unique artifacts harnessed from beyond the stars. Antiquities dealer Dok-Ondar in Black Spire Outpost is the best in the business and would love to sell his collections of jewelry, ancient tools, rare kyber crystals, statues and more.
5. Enhance the experience with the Star Wars: Datapad on Play Disney Parks Mobile App
Friendly competition is encouraged on Batuu. With the Star Wars: Datapad on Play Disney Parks Mobile App*, you can hack, scan, translate and tune into satellite frequencies at select locations throughout the land. You can use your cellphone to earn galactic credits when you activate games like “Outpost Control,” the multiplayer game that occurs several times daily.
6. Find photo-perfect locations throughout Batuu
You can capture your Star Wars adventures in action as Disney PhotoPass photographers take out-of-this-world photos of you in and around Batuu. Your greatest memories could be captured in locations like next to the Millennium Falcon, in front of the TIE echelon in the First Order Cargo area or in front of the X-wing Starfighter in the Resistance encampment.
7. Punch it on Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run
You can take the reins of the Falcon in groups of six. Each person is assigned one of three critical roles to complete your mission, and you’ll know it’s your turn to act when buttons light up in the cockpit!
Remember, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens on Dec. 5, 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® in Florida and Jan. 17, 2020 at Disneyland® Park in California.
